CARPENTRY AT LANEY
The program is designed to instruct students in the principles of carpentry and provide participation in all phases of the building process. Carpentry students build a new house and/or remodel existing structures. By using on and off campus building projects, we teach construction principles, best practices and develop hands on skills.
